is venturing out of the swing states today. romney is in pennsylvania trying to pluck that state from the grasp of president barack obama. 39 days until the election. pennsylvania is one of the states that is leaning toward the president, but romney is predicting an upset. >> i've got a little secret here, that is that obama campaign thinks that pennsylvania is in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania, we're going to take the white house. >> well, wolf blitzer with us now. so, you know, from washington, wolf, we have seen romney confine his campaign to the nine battleground states. why is he now taking a shot at this state, pennsylvania, which clearly seems to be leaning obama? >> according to the public polls, obama is doing really well in pennsylvania. maybe he's got some private polls that he's doing inside his campaign that shows some other trends developing in pennsylvania. i haven't seen any public polls that would indicate he's got a shot in pennsylvania. i also haven't seen any indication that the romney camp
into the big week of the first debate. ohio without a doubt a must-win state for governor romney. here's the new "the washington post" poll. you see the numbers right here. the president above 50, six-point lead in the state of ohio. that's one poll. but if you put together what we call a poll of polls, looking at now a half dozen polls conducted over the past two weeks, look what you get. a six-point lead for the president of the united states and again, a must-win state for mitt romney. that is the state of ohio. another must-win, i can give you a mathematical scenario for romney to win without florida but it's very difficult. so what about florida? two new polls out today, one is an arg poll shows the president with a five-point lead. here's the "washington post" poll you just mentioned, shows the president with a four-point lead. again, what we like to do when you have a lot of polls is add them all up and average them out. this is more than a half dozen polls conducted over the last two weeks. what do you get? a four-point lead for the president in the state of florida when you av

, that it's a state that is very accessible to mitt romney, a state of that obama could hold him and he holds all six of the states in the rust belt midwest area combined with only four electoral states short of victory. so critical for the romney strategy to hold a state of ohio. that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is probably up to about a four or five-point lead in the state. if you look at some the data they're on the bottom you see that the worst group for obama in 2008 was the white working-class. is hope is that he would be able to expand at margin quite a bit. that's really what romney's strategy is about. you wouldn't think it would be that hard itself. it's been hard hit economically and a lot of ticked off factory workers by giving it would've been an ideal place in which to sort of cell the romney rant. that doesn't turn out to be the case. at this point when you look at polls, the new breakouts, romney is not anywhere close to driving off that margin among white working-class voters. he is at best a few points better than mccain ran in 2008. and he is do
with mitt romney. so the obama camp feels good. the issue would be right for the picking, a state that president obama carried in 2008 with all of the economic problems it should be a state that is easy to carry but it is still neck and neck giving the obama camp hope that some of the key battlegrounds where mitt romney should be breaking through, they believe he is not. >>heather: thank you, live from las vegas. >>gregg: the race for the white house entering a critical phase now. we are approaching the first presidential election. look at the latest fox news poll showing president obama holding his lead over governor romney. we will bring in our campaign insiders. representative john leboutillier, a former republican congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink th
the president up 49% to 45% over mitt romney. again, this is one of those states with business background, economic background mitt romney should be breaking through. instead right now he is trailing. not by a lot but is he down here, shep. >> shepard: ed henry live in las vegas this afternoon. wednesday night fox report "studio b" will be live in denver for the debate and then you can watch bret baier and megyn kelly for cleat coverage in prime time wednesday night 9:00 eastern time right here on fox news channel. one of the nation's largest credit card companies has agreed to pay back $85 million to customers for violating what investigators say happened at every stage of the customer experience. according to the feds. american express charged illegal fees, discriminated against applicants based on age and mislead commerce about its debt collection policies. amex is the largest credit card company based on spending it will reportedly pay the settlement to a quarter million customers. in addition the compani' will have to pay $27 million in fines. you may recall last week the feds ordere
in the swing state of colorado. governor romney said that he would honor work visas that certain young illegal immigrants obligated through an executive order by president obama. you will recall that the governor has taken an aggressive stand on immigration in this campaign. in fact, he said he would actually veto legislation that provided a path to citizen to some immigrants. governor romney said and i quote, "the people who received the special visa the president has put if place which is a two-year vision 10 should expect the visa will continue to be valid. i will not take something they have purchased o now, live to carl cameron. is this a change, carl, or a change of emphasis for the governor? >>carl: change of emphasis. in colorado, latino are an influential voting block the he has been polling in the low 30's and even high 20 but most g.o.p. strategists says to be competitive nationally he has to get 40 percent of the that tomorrow vote. he is not close. the emphasis is he will not do what in his words he said, there will not be roundups of people being deported. he was reluctant to say
it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. finally, the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he di
. >> you make a great point. iowa is the first swing state. . started at 9:00 a.m. eastern. i know that president obama spoke to the des moines register, saying, there isn't a state that is better informed about politics, talking about iowa specifically. mitt romney though finally touting his massachusetts health care law as he tries to make the case that he is a compassionate, conservative, just like george w. bush. take a listen to this interview he gave to nbc's ron allen yesterday. >> throughout this campaign, as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more i'm pat think and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> as chuck todd point i'd out this morning the question really wasn't specifically about health care, it was about compassion and empathy and he interjected his record for massachusetts and health care and what they were able to accomplish there. can mitt romney turn his health care plan
. downen two battleground states. florida, and ohio not looking kindly. miles to go. what a week from today. october 3rd. big event. >> denver. that will be the first of three presidential debates. >> they say, ironically enough, romney may have an advantage. he had 19 debates during the primaries. all the republican debates. the president is rusty after four years. see how that factors out. both men doing a lot of prep. >> all this dirt, dirty lawn dream was aired out for everybody to see and hear. romney during the 19 debates. >> yeah, yeah, a lot of practice for sure. all right, in california, nearly 1,000 firefighters plan an all-out assault on a fire that is still smoldering near the border with mexico. >> the blaze killed one person and burned a dozen homes. abc's brandi hitt from los angeles with more on the destructive fire season so far. brandi. >> reporter: good morning, rob and paula. a deadly and costly year battling wildfires. here in california we haven't even reached the peak of fire season yet. fast-moving flames from the wildfire have kept fire crews in southeastern san die

% over mitt romney. since nevada was so hard hit with these economic woes this is the kind of state where mitt romney has to break through. megyn: we'll bring you this presidential debate live. it will be hosted by yours truly along with bret baier. we hope you will join us for that and the post-game analysis right here on fnc. a growing debate over the money we send to egypt after one congresswoman puts $450 million of u.s. aid to that country on hold. september 12 we watched mobs in cairo tear down the american flag and replace it with a black islamic flag of their own. as we learn $450 million is just a portion of what we send their way questions are coming up about what we want to do before we send any more taxpayer dollars overseas. joining me now, former ambassador to the united nations and fox news contributor, john bolton. this congresswoman has blocked the $450 million. she says given the relationship we have with them i don't know if we are justified in forking this over immediately. >> i think having congress show how outraged it is about it egyptian government's behavior is a
the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ever seen. if there's still 18% of the people that say, well, you know, i'm hope to this guy, i'm open to hear what he has to say, that would include some romney voters who might be open to the president, but when you'd have an incumbent,ou'd expect that much persuade about would be good news for the challenger, that the president hasn't been able to convince all the persuadable voters that mitt romney is, in fact, a vampire. megyn: now, we saw during the republican presidential primary that these debates really can have an effect. candidates really were forced to leave the race based on their debate performances occasionally during that republican primary, so it's no accident that we have both s
. >>> moving on, republican presidential hopeful mitt romney and his running mate, paul ryan, on the stump in ohio today, a key battleground state where new poll numbers show their campaign is in some serious trouble. they're going to be touting their plans to tackle the debt crisis, improve unemployment and cut spending. but romney seems to have strayed from his long time insistence that president obama raised taxes during his first term now. he is saying the president did not. >> his idea now is -- he's got one new, one new idea. i admit this one thing he did not do in his first four years he said he will do in the next four years, which is to raise taxes. >> the romney campaign is standing by the argument that the president has raised taxes. fact check, obama has raised taxes on cigarettes and tanning beds and not income taxes. though romney's own spokesman says it has happened 19 times. >>> well, the nfl and locked out referees have met behind closed doors trying to resolve their differences. the meeting comes amid growing outrage over the call made monday night by a replacement ref. e

adviser to governor romney. >> i say this to make a partisan statement, but it is different. we spend years in the bush years talking about an imperial for the united states. empire means you have a power above the rules that makes rules are ready else. * not what this war of this. it is not ever going to work. and so i think with in the united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture a sense that it is an example worth emulating although they have not nearly as strong as the root like them to be, there is hope and strength to move into an isolationist direction to move away from spending money and writing checks for international institutions, to move toward taking care our own business. look at president obama and his strategy with regard said drones and covert operations. it's very exceptional is the. is in this exceptional as the impulse something that could actually be more extreme in the next several years? >> i was with you right up until the end because exceptional rosamund isolationism are two different things. exceptional some can be the engine for imperial
for the policy makers in the united states to put the fiscal cliff ahead of politics. in texas, a democratic caller, henry. caller: good morning. romney is about a year-and-a- half older than i am. i remember in the 1960's they were drafting everybody like crazy. from what i've understand, he went on the religious sabbatical and took a religious draft exemption. back then that was a conscientious objector status in the 1960's when they were drafting everybody to go to vietnam. that was before the lottery system. it was basically the old system. i feel like to the core of romney, he is two-faced. host: what does this have to do with the role of the united nations? caller: if he does not have the guts to stand up for this country, what makes you think he would be suitable to be president of the united states? host: here's thomas on the line. caller: i think the u.n. is doing a decent job. it is an enormous task they are undertaking. the bigger problem is our relationship with israel. we let them dictate to us on everything. the republicans are lining because obama will not meet with benjamin n
